kind of gothic today?

Wearing jeans from VOD, Balenciaga booties, shearling and suede Richard Chai jacket, a Junya Watanabe shirt I'm borrowing from mom, and major bedhead…
These jeans are so boss! I cannot remember the name of the designer-it is a friend of Jackie's from VOD who does these insanely cool rock & roll leather jackets and skirts and jeans like these.
I have gotten a crazy amount of email from new readers (and old readers) this week-I'm sorry if I don't get back to all of them. But thank you so much to everyone who has written such sweet emails + Facebook messages-you guys are unbelievably kind!

    OOh, am i first to comment? *wins at life*
    I love those booties. I like how they are sorta bulky, but still have a clean line to it. Those jeans are fun too; they seem casual, but are still sophisticated.
    I also really liked the look you did with the faux-leather leggings a little while ago (I gave it a shoutout on my blog when I tried to do something with those leggings, though admittedly not nearly as chic as yours: http://ifthesokfitz.blogspot.com/2009/02/youre-real-good-at-matching-your-ties.html)
    Wow, with all the time it took to write this comment I’m probably not first anymore. Oh well.

  4. Angela says:

    Amazing jeans…and I am convinced that you can do no wrong fashion-wise! You have a way of making everything your own with the way you put your looks together.

  8. Love the jeans! Nice… I love how chunky the zipper is and the stitch detail is sick.

    anyway the total look relly rocks!

  38. lucy says:

    wow – first teen vogue and now the big one, style.com! congratulations!!

  39. Please don’t hate me, but while I love the jeans and the booties, I think that there’s something ever so awkward about the proportions on the jacket. Not really sure what it is- you’re usually on top of your game, so maybe it’s just the angle?

  40. charm says:

    oh shoes, you kill me…

  41. Lindsey says:

    blech. we never comment on anything and while we appreciate your love of shoes we find your presentation grimace inducing and beyond bougie. what’s your angle, really? you’re a rich kid from wherever with nothing to say but look at what (not my) money can buy. offer an opinion, some humility and a bit of brain to the blog and we might reconsider. otherwise you are like the hills…pretty, pretty bland and gloriously boring.
    we used to love teen vogue.now it has five pages of fashion with some socialites who’s parents are buddies with anna wintour in between.

  51. Barbara says:

    the booties are awesome!

  52. Joya says:

    Rockin’ it, lady.

  53. Mandi says:
